Be Photoshoot Ready. Makeup Mistakes You Might Be Making

Makeup applications techniques for a photoshoot are vastly different from your everyday wear. Doing makeup is a challenge for most, and being photoshoot ready can be even more daunting. Soniya is a certified make-up artist I had the pleasure of recommending.

I recommend Soniya to one of my clients. This lovely lady right here wanted to do a special photoshoot to commemorate her milestone birthday. Marie couldn't stop raving about Soniya and her makeup skills when we did her photoshoot. I couldn't agree more! I had the pleasure to talk to her about makeup, tips, and getting photoshoot ready. Retouching these images was a breeze because the makeup application was flawless.

Meet Soniya

Soniya Chanra started her makeup journey by accident. Like most girls with the love of makeup and all things sparkly, Soniya's makeup skills were so on point that others wanted her to do their makeup. Soniya had no idea how to recreate her makeup looks on others. She decided to take a Makeup Artistry Certificate course at the International Beauty Institute. Soniya felt more comfortable doing makeup on others with this new knowledge while keeping her practices sanitary.

Soniya built the dream most of us have. She went from a side gig to working full-time as a makeup artist. She said she loves what she does. Soniya works in the Mississauga area. Some makeup artists may not travel to see clients, but not Soniya. She's travelled quite a bit to do makeup.
